Defining the diagnostic divide : an analysis of registered radiological equipment resources in a low-income African country
(African Field Epidemiology Network, 2016)
ENGLISH SUMMARY : Introduction: Diagnostic radiology is recog nised as a key component of modern healthcare. However there is marked inequality in global access to imaging. Rural populations of low - and middle - income ...
The Global Consortium for Drug-resistant Tuberculosis Diagnostics (GCDD) : design of a multi-site, head-to-head study of three rapid tests to detect extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis
(BioMed Central, 2014-11)
Background: Drug-resistant tuberculosis (DR-TB) remains a threat to global public health, owing to the complexity and delay of diagnosis and treatment. The Global Consortium for Drug-resistant Tuberculosis Diagnostics ...

Diagnostic reference levels for paediatric computed tomography
(AOSIS Publishing, 2015-11-30)
Objectives: To establish local diagnostic reference levels (LDRLs) for emergency paediatric head computed tomography (CT) scans performed at a South African (SA) tertiary-level hospital and to compare these with published ...
The accuracy of radiology speech recognition reports in a multilingual South African teaching hospital
(BioMed Central, 2015-03)
Background: Speech recognition (SR) technology, the process whereby spoken words are converted to digital text, has been used in radiology reporting since 1981. It was initially anticipated that SR would dominate ...
